New survey reveals nearly half of all pet owners will purchase a present for their pet and veterinarians recommend smart collars.
BURLINGTON, Mass. – New market survey reveals a rise in gifts for pets, and PetPace, the provider of innovative health monitoring smart collars for dogs and cats, is urging pet owners to give the gift of health to their pets this holiday season.
According to a poll of 3,000 people carried out by Google Consumer Surveys, 48 percent of pet owners will buy their pet a Christmas present this year. In another recent survey, four out of five veterinarians recommend a health monitoring collar like PetPace.
“An increasing number of people in the U.S. consider their pet to be a member of their family and as a result, more people are including their pets in holiday festivities. This year, pet owners can treat their pets with a PetPace collar and give themselves the gift of peace of mind,” said Dr. Asaf Dagan, chief veterinarian at PetPace. “Devices like PetPace allow pet owners to play a more active role in their pet’s health, right from their smartphone, and can potentially save their life.”
The company’s sensor-rich smart collars allow for remote continuous monitoring and analysis of pet vital signs and activity directly from a mobile device. Trackable vital signs include temperature, pulse, respiration, heart rate variability (HRV), activity levels, calories and more.
PetPace was created by veterinarians and animal-lovers looking for a way to improve the health of pets, especially those dogs and cats that are old or sick. The idea behind inventing a non-invasive, health monitoring smart collar was to quickly identify impending health concerns and monitor existing medical conditions.
When a dog or cat wearing a PetPace device develops unusual symptoms, their owner or veterinary healthcare professional is immediately notified via alerts. These automatic alerts prompt pet owners to seek medical attention for their pet and can assist with the early identification of illnesses like heat stroke, hyperthyroidism, impending heart failure and more.

PetPace was founded in 2012 to bring peace of mind to pet owners and prevent unnecessary pain and suffering for dogs and cats through improved pet health and quality of life. PetPace specializes in the remote monitoring of pet vital signs by utilizing advanced analytical methods and alerting models. The company’s low power, wireless collar is fitted with an array of sensors that report abnormal vital signs within established physiological and behavioral parameters. Once an abnormal sign or behavior is detected, a sophisticated cloud-based analytical engine evaluates the signs and, if needed, sends an immediate alert regarding any suspected condition. This allows the owner or the vet to take preemptive action to protect the pet’s health. For more information about PetPace real-time pet health monitoring, visit http://PetPace.com.
